Referees’ body Professional Game Match Officials Limited PGMOL has effectively accepted controversial Video Assistant Referee VAR decisions made at Chelsea and Newcastle were wrong and will fully co-operate with a Premier League review of the incidents.

The decisions denied Newcastle United and West Ham goals against Crystal Palace and Chelsea, respectively, after both teams thought they had scored, with the goals confirmed by the on-pitch referee only to be discredited after a VAR check.

The Premier League is to now review the decisions with the PGMOL as a matter of priority.
